"They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead" (Netflix Original)
Great title. Also great subject, since this documentary -- available November 2 -- explores a chapter in the life of Orson Welles. "Academy Award winner Morgan Neville ('20 Feet from Stardom") tells the provocative story of legendary director Orson Welles during the final 15 years of his life, when he struggled to make a Hollywood comeback with one last radical gamble. It's the untold chapter of one of the greatest careers in film history." Trailer.
"The Other Side of The Wind" (Netflix Film)
Pssst. If you watch the title above about Orson Welles, you might want to see this one too. It's a satire of classic and new Hollywood that just debuted in 2018, although it was filmed from 1970 to 1976. "Surrounded by fans and skeptics, grizzled director J.J. 'Jake' Hannaford (John Huston) returns from years abroad in Europe to a changed Hollywood, where he attempts to make his comeback: a career summation that can only be the work of cinema's most adventurous filmmaker, Orson Welles." Watch the trailer. This one will be in select theaters and on Netflix this Friday, Nov. 2.
"House of Cards" Season 6 (Netflix Original)
It's HER turn. The final season of "House of Cards" arrives -- sans Kevin Spacey -- starting November 2. Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) is in charge, but she's not finding the POTUS job much easier than her husband did before ... *something* happened to him. Netflix is going to have to explain what apparently killed off Frank Underwood between Season 5 and Season 6. Here's the official trailer.
"The Holiday Calendar" (Netflix Film)
'Tis the season for Christmas movies, and Netflix has a bunch of holiday rom-coms coming this month. This one -- streaming Nov. 2 -- stars Kat Graham as a woman whose life is stuck in a rut until her grandfather (Ron Cephas Jones) gifts her the antique advent calendar that belonged to her grandmother. The calendar is pretty magical, and romantic adventure ensues. Trailer.

New on DVD and Blu-ray
"Teen Titans Go! To the Movies"Warner Bros.
Here's a random idea: Have yourself a Nicolas Cage double-feature with this animated film -- in which Cage voices Superman -- and "Mandy" below. Two very different films brought together by a very different man. Or you could just watch this film on its own when it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD October 30.
The Blu-ray Combo Pack includes the Lil Yachty Music Video: “Teen Titans GO! Rap"; a sing-a-long with Silkie “DC Super Hero Girls: The Late Batsby” Mini-Movie; Red Carpet Mayhem; “Everything is Fake”: Exclusive song not in the movie; Teen Titans GO! To the Movies: WB Lot Shenanigans; Storyboard Animatics: Time Cycles; The Final Battle' and more.
Panos Cosmatos' wild, stylish, critically acclaimed, and blood-soaked horror-thriller arrives on Blu-ray and DVD October 30. Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, and Linus Roache star in the film, which comes with deleted and extended scenes, and a look behind-the-scenes of the production.
It's Halloween. So even though this movie was panned by critics and audiences, it still fits the theme of the week. So here goes: Joey King, Julia Goldani Telles, Jaz Sinclair, Annalise Basso, Alex Fitzalan, Taylor Richardson, Javier Botet, and Jessica Blank
all deserve better star in this horror film arriving on Blu-ray and DVD October 30. The release includes the featurette “Summoning Slender Man: Meet the Cast."
